Um, the root disk cannot be made.

Well, the stupid raid drivers that need all those controller-specific
devices is what is consuming all the inode space.
You may be able to tweak the controllers that are built. The
compromise we *explicitly* made was to only support one controller,
and only support so many devices, to keep the root disk size down.
If you can find another workaround, great; otherwise, we need to back
that out so bf can build again.

No problem at all. Leave the documentation side to me.
My only request, as I said before, is that you make changelog entries
with the bug closing directives in there.

Yeah, it's in scripts/rootdisk/mklibs.sh ?
